our t.v. well moving on to our top story it's been a deadly night in cairo but there are conflicting reports of the number of victims the muslim brotherhood claims that more than one hundred people were killed in clashes while the health ministry confirms only twenty deaths most of the casualties are apparently supporters of the ousted president mohamed morsy with some reports suggesting that they were deliberately targeted by gunmen local media also claims that thousands were injured during what is believed to be the largest protests egypt to see in in two and a half years true is in cairo for us. it was a very bloody no here in egypt as clashes erupted in many parts of the country and continue into saturday morning off to these nationwide find to protest vote in support and against the ousted leader mohamed morsi what eyewitnesses is saying although we haven't completely reports it protested had this to attempt to extend the sit in past the area they had been standing in for the last few weeks toward
security breach at this point security forces then attempted to push them back with t. gas fields hospital doctors are reporting people have died and there are a number of injured as well what we're seeing now is apparently eyewitnesses saying that some people have been coming in with gunshot wounds although we can't confirm whether come by a voice these as well as people having problems with take ash inhalation but it was very chaotic with the engine coming in every five minutes and ambulances and people will go in the back of motorcycles bringing the wounded into the city and now this is also happened in other parts of the country there were violent clashes in the coastal city of alexandria between rival protest groups when supporters and opponents of the ousted leader met in the main running point also eating people dead this is been very very bloody civilian on civilian car chase we have of course seen massive amounts of tanks here and the military joining the police in attacking people saying or attacking these citizens of course this comes after the
announcement on friday that mohamed morsi would be kept in detention following investigations into charges that he's been conspiring against the country with the palestinian organization hamas in addition to possibly being responsible for the deaths of the prison guards and offices when he broke out of prison during the eighteen the uprising in two thousand and eleven so this is a very serious serious allegation against the former president we could see him so jail time this of has of course a few. the fire and anger by his opponents is of course these islamist groups that miss the brotherhood who is saying this is a very much of driven charge and that this is part of it why did crackdown against the group by the ministry know cindi's backing many people are dying the violence is continuing leading many to feed that this will only get worse well earlier i had spoken to dr mohamad abdul aziz he's the director of the salaam islamic center in
california and is from milieu with a situation on the ground in egypt now he told me that there are strong indications that the army's crackdown on the muslim brotherhood could lead to the radicalization of its young members. the military is now doing what it does best going after the supporters of the legitimate president i'm getting reports of very close friends childhood friends or physicians volunteering in the field hospital telling me that they are counting over one hundred of victims in their shift alone over the past eight hours most of whom were actually shot in the head and this is basically i am innocent of the of the nasir era and the crackdown on the muslim brotherhood that took place in the one nine hundred fifty s. what we be sickly see a repetition of that same scenario where the military of egypt cracking down on on on an islamist group we may or may not agree with their policy these but they have renounced violence a long time ago they put him in a prison to torture the members of these should and
a group of those members will eventually break off of the muslim brotherhood and adopt a more violent perspectives and this is exactly what happened in the sixty's seventy's and eighty's and those developments basically to the creation of the international phenomenon of terrorism that we still suffer the ramifications of until the present day what with the extremely concerns me right now is those young members of the brotherhood seeing the same exact thing feeling that democracy can never bring them to power that their voices will never be heard that they will eventually resort to violence and then when we have waves and waves of violence of this it's not going to be good for anybody of course there have been disturbing photographs of the violent scenes in egypt on twitter and some of the photos that we've gathered at our t. dot com show that the injured are children and there are claims that a thirteen year old boy was killed in alexandria and verified of course now there are also photographs on twitter allegedly showing people firing rat live rounds at
pro morsy protesters so you can log on to our team dot com check out our timeline of the turmoil as well as the aforementioned photographs. he is eager. to do. well on to syria now where the syrian national coalition had met with the u.n. security council in new york and had agreed to participate in a geneva peace conference but as artist marina park i reports are number of preconditions still have to be met before any such weekend take place delegation representing the syrian opposition that is visiting new york promised to attended
the geneva two meeting it seems as though the delegation has a lot of. before it will actually arrive that this should be able to meeting it seems as though they want to make sure that syrian president bashar al assad has no authority following the geneva two meeting and another precondition possibly that we could that was spoken about by the by the french envoy was the fact that once a transitional government is established that that transitional government would have full authority over the security of the military in syria as russian ambassador to the u.n. really underscored here is that all this talk of prevent the geneva two meeting from actually moving forward and taking place understand that everybody is going to tax with the national committee with the supreme council of the kurds of syria but
there is a common understanding it has not yet been achieved among them to be jointly represented to be presented to. the syrian opposition would like to. receive the weapons in arms in military aid that the obama administration recently promised to provide to the rebels fighting against syrian president bashar al assad many ask why would washington be shipping more weapons in. the civil war that is now we should do in iraq years france's envoy to the un just spoke to the media and said that the vast majority of you would member states already recognize mr geraci as you can still representative of the syrian people legally i don't know how that can happen within the un there can't be official recognition of someone that is not a head of state or without it being processed within the united nations also with some experts are questioning is the overall legitimacy of the syrian national coalition critics say the group has no power in the box and recognition inside of
syria using per year an abscessed of the answer anti-war coalition says the syrian rebels are willing to negotiate only when they have the upper hand. the united states and the united kingdom france other western nations have really made clear that they will only accept the fall of the side and despite the fact that they continually try to say that they're for peace negotiations it seems at every turn whether it's sending arms to the rebels whether it's in them quote unquote non-lethal aid money in general supporting the gulf countries that are also supporting them that really all of the talk about peace is disingenuous and unlike russia and other countries they seem very. determined to push forward the syrian rebels as the new leadership of the country regardless of the situation on the ground when the russian the united states where originally trying to promote the geneva two conference we saw that the syrian rebels essentially said that they had no intention of negotiating until the situation on the ground changed that is until they gained the military upper hand so from their perspective they seem only
willing to negotiate if the military situation allows them to have the upper hand in negotiations but if they seem to be losing the war if it seems that support for them inside of the country is dropping all of a sudden they have no desire to negotiate and they only want to continue to push war which is the subtext of this entire meeting where on the sidelines they have been pushing for more and more military aid from the united states and for it to come significantly quicker meanwhile christoper tina who's an analyst for public opinion and strategy what paige believes that the u.s. involvement in syria could potentially create another iraq. there's so many factions that have so much influence with this coalition and even the assad government has brought in others outsiders if you will to sort of prop up their government that there doesn't seem to be any particular group that can claim to be in charge or one side or the other the whole situation is become balkanize the last thing people in america want is to get into another situation or rock which is very
confusing we never really pick the side. to be on that seem to be the right side and ten years after our invasion they're so good there doesn't seem to be any kind of coalition no around a governing body that all iraqis can agree on as far as most americans are concerned this is just another big mess. so i have for you washington says that it is moving towards closing the guantanamo bay prison this by sending two inmates back but as we hear later on in the program their future in the country may to not work out for the better. and. also we report on how some folks in venezuela are turning to so-called self-defense groups to quell the danger of staggering street crime as a police prove to be powerless.
welcome back u.s. prosecutors have charged a group of hackers with stealing more than three hundred million dollars in what's been dubbed as america's largest cyber fraud case doesn't get could now face decades behind bars as our teams enter blake reports. we had five guys four russian nationals and one ukrainian man who over the course of around seven years were able to penetrate a number of the networks of leading financial institutions banks all sorts of systems where very important information was being stored over the course for several years those men broke into the databases allegedly took a sensitive information and in the end u.s. prosecutors now say that those five men were able to compromise roughly one hundred sixty million credit cards causing upwards of three hundred million dollars of
damage they were able to elude authorities for around seven or eight years now but actually masterminding this operation itself took a lot of very careful planning now all of the five men that are believed involved in this each one kind of had a separate little niche that they would specialize in solving for instance were experts when it came to penetrating computer networks others were would go into these networks after they were compromised in mind for dad even more would build up a very very sophisticated internet network should be able to communicate anonymously so by having different specialists in different sectors they were all able to to put the pieces together and cause millions of dollars hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage and affect people around the globe two of them were arrested one of them has since been extradited from the netherlands the other one is awaiting extradition and three of them are at large so once they are brought to the u.s. and tried to see could be looking at likely decades in prison. that was unsealed
thursday this week it all stems from a previous investigation that began a few years ago and did with the conviction of an american computer hacker who is currently serving several decades behind prison for a similar crime. and while washington is trying to secure cyberspace from illegal access its appetite for private data seems to be getting momentum now this is as the securities and exchange commission lines up to monitor people's private e-mails without a warrant or details on our website r.t. dot com also therefore you. know you might think these folks would be ready to pollok complaint for being pepper sprayed but that's not exactly how things play out in fact it's a police officer who is now demanding compensation learn why online.
two guantanamo bay detainees could soon be repatriated from the prison facility in cuba to their home country of algeria now the white house says that this is part of a move or part of obama's plan in fact to close down the prison it also says that algeria has successfully managed detainees in the past almost half of the inmates of the prison are still being held behind bars this despite being cleared for release dr alan singer from the university in new york state believes that the move is an attempt by the u.s. to break the hunger strike at the one time obey detention facility. in many ways detractors desperation the hunger strike has embarrassed the united states all over the world so they're trying to break dawn destroyed by pushing out a couple that people but these are people that are being detained without any legal justification what it thinks i find so curious is that trying to get out curiously
jake to the people algeria is not well noted for the due process of its courts countries with stablish legal proceedings do not want to touch this just saying states it is saying to all buy love you made this mess you're stuck with it i am an expert on the all jury imprisoned system by a go to jail i think i'd much rather go to sweden or denmark the traditions in general in algeria are very very harsh i mean i think they're looking to send people to a. hunter's fate i don't see this is any kind of due process of any kind of outcome i just think they're trying to get out of something they created president clinton has visited kiev's main cathedral to mark the hour you will arrive on part of the average of all of the st andrew's cross as a symbolic relic that had united nations of ancient russia and he's also said to hold talks of the crane later viktoria of its parties or in english go look at the historical twists and turns between moscow and kiev. well it's really the center of
one of the most religious festivities you have seen in the last several years of hundreds of thousands of people have flocked here. taking part. because one thousand and twenty five years ago it was here and it was adopted as official religion. and then spread its way across the country and there have been several you can see conflicts that russia and ukraine have participated in over the past several decades the orange revolution which increasingly saw ukraine pushing. away from russian towards europe of course there are people in ukraine who look at her and looking west they're looking at europe. it's in the european union that. tension and their priorities lie. they want to see some of the values at the same time of course russia and ukraine share a lot of cultural historic and of course the economic ties and
a lot of critics. of ukraine warned that should the country's turn westward risking basically diluting its national identity. well let's take a look at some of the other stories making headlines across the world we begin with brazil more violent rallies have broken out in the city of south. police used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse over three hundred protesters as they ran saying tanks and torched a vehicle belonging to a local television company the rally comes amid demonstrations in rio de janeiro where people voice their discontent over corruption the protests to follow last month on rest when thousands have taken to the streets in anger at a crippled social system and rising transportation to use. the fate of whistleblower bradley manning is about to be decided as the seven weeks long trial comes to an end the military judge is due to rule on the charges after closing arguments were heard now manning has admitted to ten of the twenty two crimes he's accused of but not the most serious charge of aiding the enemy the former private
faces life in prison for what is considered to be the largest ever leak of secret u.s. government documents. the state funeral is being held for the assassinated tunisian opposition leader mohamed brahmi he was gunned down in front of his home by two on known men with authorities claiming all titling to extremists for the attack yes all triggered mass protests across the country with least one protester killed in overnight russia's. thousands of soldiers and dozens of tanks and rocket launchers separated through pyongyang's main square to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the korean war and not a country's leader with this to show from the podium as troops eluded him while passing by military parades are sometimes used to underline the military power of north korea the tension remaining high with its southern neighbor. but then as well it may be seen as a potential safe haven for u.s. whistleblower on the run edward snowden but for many of its citizens the country is far from safe with street crimes that rival robberies reaching record highs some
residents have begun to form self-defense groups to protect themselves one now from our. all. election campaign may have been based on the lead this is legacy but if there's one the major issue good as well as a new president can be credited for bringing to the forefront it's the country's lack of security you can be abducted even from your own home there's no safety in our country government figures show more than sixteen thousand people were killed in venezuela in two thousand and twelve an increase of fourteen percent from the year before and a murder rate of fifty five point two per hundred thousand inhabitants one of the highest in the world making the high crime rate public enemy number one. their tack room and beats us my father was killed near his home four years ago. entered. collectives organizations that initially emerged as left as revolutionary groups
driven by ideology determined to confront a society's ills today they're known either as protectors of the community or violent vigilante groups depending on whom you ask we need. also known as now a senior member of the. there were. some time ago american imperialism that infiltrated latin america in venezuela in particular cause massive spread of drugs across our territory we have to combat this disease that's when the movement of power or kid even protests and narrow started we also start of a model of urban groups that fight drug trafficking and violence we clean up the streets so to speak. now we're here in an area called bend at the us and there are a lot of shanty towns here and it's very rural who go chavez and also pro but it's also home to a very strong leftist activism and people here tell me that they don't welcome the police they don't want to see it here because they say that the police here are
corrupt instead they have groups armed groups called the collective us who maintain security in this area they may. be going after drug traffickers but it's widely believed that at times they also resort to lethal means some locals say however that there's no alternative for now police corruption has been so rampant that in two thousand and nine the government even admitted that twenty percent of crimes were committed by crooked cops but the collective a self-proclaimed role as protector may be challenged as he pushes his secure fatherland plan deploying some three thousand troops into the streets of caracas let's take the example of the quality was they might help the government one day and then they might become allied with local mafias on the next day mr nikola of the new president that will charge his out of the scene is certainly going to have much greater difficulty in bringing them under the sway of government policies and government orders he's definitely getting into a very very difficult waters there because if he sends at least forces trying to
control them that will definitely create scenes of violence of those scenes of violence can turn very ugly and now those in the hot seat having pledged to make tackling climate a personal priority a promise will be held by a politically divided population united by a desperate desire for peace of mind to answer cilia r.t. caracas. that's it for me for today but do stay with us to watch our team we have technology update coming right up. boy oh boy there are a lot of conspiracy theories out there from mysterious extra planets drip kilian
creatures living among us but there also may conspiracy theories that are very plausible and some that are well actually true one that i've heard for a long. time is that they are specifically trying to fill the police with dimwits to abuse the american people which is silly right right well according to a.b.c. news a discrimination lawsuit revealed that robert jordan was denied the chance to become a new london police officer because he was too smart his entrance exam score was a thirty three which is an i.q. of one hundred twenty five and it was just too high to allow him to defend the public good that police department only accepts candidates who have scores from twenty to twenty seven the logic is that people who are too smart get bored as policeman and they're more likely to quit after years of costly training. yeah this is proof of a conspiracy theory well the lowest score they accept is still around an average i.q. so that doesn't mean they're specifically trying to fill the place with subpar people but it does seem really weird to fear people with high i.q.'s entering the police
force this case to have a confirms nor denies the conspiracy theory but is definitely food for thought and does a kind of not make sense to discriminate against anyone ever for having a high i.q. i don't know but that's just my opinion. hello and welcome to technology updates my name's peter and i'll be presenting the show in today's episode we learn about guns changing career. participants of the formants holmes go into football match between robots and humans. which and scientists consult some crystals in the lab. the beast upon its own game.
and russia trucks on the take big boys. put first. around for this month's tech news. used by its resource pay observation satellite was put into operation on the twenty fifth of june the commercial satellite would be used for creating an operating maps monitoring pollution levels searching for mineral deposits and assisting the russian emergency services business deals on camera is capable of taking black and white small cool images with a resolution of up to one meter over an area of eighty thousand square kilometers per day the first test shots of l.a. in kansas were received on the second of july the second international conference on quantum technologies was held in moscow this month the event stretched over one hundred scientists including a nobel prize winner the conference was dedicated to the application of quantum physics in technology one of the latest breakthroughs in this field is in teleportation the head of the russian quantum sensors executive committee tells us more what's happening there is that we've clearly poort
a quantum state of atoms for all occasion to another and atoms in the same quantum state they're indistinguishable therefore we can say that with the reporting atoms for one location to another but they were not moving matter when moving information about this matter and so the information which was written in the atoms of this location is no transferred teleported unturned other location the trick is that quantum information can not be written as a sequence of classical bits and therefore i cannot just look at where times and call you on the phone and tell me everything about there i am not allowed to do it by the laws of nature therefore we need this special link which we call in the tango moment and this is how teleportation was accomplished in the sixth
international maritime defense or was held in st petersburg earlier this month the event got off to a flying start with an aerobatic display from the russian knights and at. it's a guess from thirty one countries the show not only gave participants the opportunity to demonstrate the latest in naval technology on dry land under the sea but also get down to serious business. the russian government submitted a bill to the state team on the twenty eighth of june a radical reorganization of the bush an academy of sciences which was founded in seven hundred twenty four and currently unites four hundred eighty three institutions employing around ninety five thousand people consuming proposals of the bill for the russian academy of sciences to the russian academy of agricultural sciences on the russian credit me of medical sciences transferring control over the organizations financial assets of property to specifically created state agency giving the scientists more time to spending a lot of the bill is designed to improve the efficiency of the organization encourage putting scientists to join and stimulate will cost research but a.
